2008 Gandia Fusta Nova Moscatel

Moscatel is made from the Muscat grape, but this wine is made in a different style than the Barefoot Moscato (which is yummy!) or a Moscato D’Asti (also delicious!).   It is heavier/thicker, with more honey notes.   This had lots of the same characteristics of a Sauternes or late harvest Chardonnay.   Sugared lemon, honey, and fresh cut flowers on the nose, with some acidity on the midpalate and a honeyed finish.   I liked the balance of citrusy notes and honey… very interesting.   This wine would be awesome with the right stinky cheese…

$10.00/bottle @ Whole Foods
